Matt Weston

Matt is a senior associate at Space Makers and works with us on developing new projects.

His role is to make sure everyone knows and agrees on what the point of the project is, defining the strategy and identifying the ‘story’ at the heart of the project.

In 2009, he started the Brighton Slack Space network, a grassroots movement to make creative use of all the unused and underused buildings in the city. He has also been involved with the development of co-​working spaces in the city.

In the past, Matt set-​up smallbusiness​.co​.uk and raised six-​figure investment from the likes of Lloyds and Microsoft. He then founded the quite successful and very well-​loved Business Bricks website: funded entirely by reader donations (and a big contract with Google).
